NIAS book wins Euroseas Prize
We are pleased to announce that a NIAS Press book has won the inaugural Nikkei Euroseas Book Prize in the social sciences category. This is Philip Taylor's Khmer Lands of Vietnam, a marvellous book co-published by NUS Press and the University of Hawai‘i Press.
The prize was awarded on day two of the Euroseas conference, being held in beautiful surroundings on the campus of the University of Vienna. With temperatures soaring above 35 degrees (nearly 100 degrees fahrenheit), all conference goers are feeling the heat
Happily, the prizes were awarded late in the day when the shadows were longer. Here you can (just) see NIAS Press editor in chief Gerald Jackson accepting the prize on behalf of the author.
